If you’ve been paying any attention at all to the local art scene, then you undoubtedly know David Brickman, either from his excellent photography or from his art criticism.

But just in case you aren’t familiar with his work, you’ve got a golden opportunity in downtown Troy this month. Brickman is represented in not one, not two, but three simultaneous art exhibitions all within walking distance of each other around town.

His work is on exhibit as part of the Fence Select ’09 show at the Arts Center of the Capital Region through Sunday, September 13.

His photos are also featured in the Photo Center‘s third annual members’ exhibit, on view through Monday, September 7.

And he’s one of the eight area artists featured in “Group Show, Part I” which is on exhibit at the Clement Frame Shop and Art Gallery through Wednesday, August 26.
